What equipment are you thinking about?

Recommended Posts

I would like a new 50* wedge. I've been doing some research and I'm eyeballing the Taylormade MG but Ping has also peaked my interest. Worst case scenario I just go back to my old standby Vokey. Now that some new stuff is coming out I should be able to pick up on the cheap.

Was getting ready to pull the trigger on a 54* CBX but now with these CBX 2's coming out... do I grab the OG CBX and save some dough or do I go all-out for the latest and greatest?

... Imo as long as you have the right grind for your style of play and where you play, a wedge is a wedge. I can't see much difference between the two so the CBX looks pretty good to me.

I’m sitting here thinking about equipment I already have, a set of Ping ISI irons and wedges. I was rearranging the garage and have a few sets hanging up high, one was the ISI’s. I pulled them down and decided to take them to the range. Talk about point and shoot clubs, so easy to hit these high and long. The wedges are great too. I love how funky these things look.

I haven’t played these in about a year but I might just put them in the bag for awhile.

Offset, anyone?

I’ve been up north the last month or so visiting family. Haven’t been playing much, (3 or 4 times) but just popped in and I see you’ve made a few changes!

New driver, which Is the one I’m dying to try, but I’m really curious about you and the Steelheads. You helped me a lot in the Cleveland iron thread, and I returned the favor with the 5 hybrid, lol. We both ended up back with the Steelheads, then I found and fell in love with the Rogue Xs. 

If you get the time, let me hear the details about your journey from the SHs and the Cobras to the TAs. I’d love to hear it!

It doesn't thrill me, but you're talking to a guy who's playing the G700s. I've already given up on the svelte-looking club idea.

For what it’s worth, I switched from the MD3s to the RTX3 cbs a few months ago. I loved the mds, but I like the Rtx3 a little better. Different lofts though. The calls were 54&58, the Cleveland’s are 52&58.

Sounds like you have been on the same merry - go - round as I have! lol    

The SH irons are definitely one of if not my favorite irons of all times.  I won't rule out that they could sneak back in the bag one day. The Cobra light irons were not a good fit for me simply because they are built more for the senior who needs more speed.  I'm not denying I could use more speed however my quick transition and the light irons were not the best fit.  Now the TS irons are legit and  they feel solid and have a comfort about them that provides confidence.   Not unlike the Cleveland HB's and the TS irons are packed with distance and power. Only issue I have had thus far is one of the badges came off (9i).  It's only cosmetic however you would think this would not be a problem at early use.  I can honestly say I don't foresee anything kicking the TA's out of my bag. They are that good!

I am in the same boat as you, college tuition is due for my daughter and she doesn’t move I until the 17th. I’d probably get the original CBX since they will be discounted.

I almost pulled the trigger on a set of those for $20. By the time I decided to go check them out, they had already sold.

I think I am reading golf forums too much as I am really getting into the tinker with my bag mindset. Current thoughts:

- new driver shaft - something a little heavier to help me with tempo and maybe narrow left/right shot dispersion. Need to do some experiments.

- new 3 wood - mine has just been misbehaving so I am tempted to throw it out and start over. Might even consider a reshaft since it has a lightweight regular flex shaft and I would just replace it with another exotics club but with some adjustability. There is a nice used one at my local golf store. It Has gotten into my mind after seeing my swing speed (100-106) during 3 wood most wanted testing.

- 54* wedge - mine are just old and probably due for a replacement. Could just get a tool to work on the grooves.

Famous last words lol.

Just kidding, enjoy them!

youre right, I was on the merry go round. Stumbled into the Rogue x (the last thing I would’ve imagined I’d end up with) and couldn’t be happier. I think I may have jumped the shark with the matching hybrids however. They’re good, but I’m not seeing an upgrade from the Steelhead hybrids. Oh well, they weren’t the first impulse buy I’ve made, and I’m sure they won’t be the last.

Thinking about going all Honma

Their fairway metals that I bought for around $60 each are noticeably nicer than the Callaways I bought for $300 each (Callaway being my favorite of the American brands).

I just got a Honma driver for $120 (compared to the $300 Ping, $300 Taylormade, and $400 Cobra) and it's clearly the best of the bunch. During the first session with it I hit my longest drive ever. By a significant margin. Consistency is great too. Now it's just about getting the swing where it needs to be.

Time out. Where are you getting such cheap Honma clubs?

Were these clubs new?  If so, congrats on your Chinese counterfeits

I really only mentioned price because normally when this brand comes up people either have never heard of it, or say "Aren't those the clubs that cost twenty thousand dollars?"

So showing that they are actually not overpriced at all...

To make it a fair comparison you would have to compare product costs from the same year. Also because Honma isn’t a household name, price in the resale market is generally lower.
